My blog has been pretty much dead for the past few months, in case you haven’t noticed. I’ve been working on getting my life together, so I actually have an excuse (haha). Typically, I would feel super disappointed in myself for neglecting my blog but there have been a lot of new and exciting things that have happened while I’ve been gone. It has most definitely been a long few months of getting my life back on track, but I can’t wait to share with you what’s been going on and what is coming in the future.
First and foremost, I’m FINALLY a licensed cosmetologist!! It has been such a long time coming, and YEARS in the making but I am so proud of myself for accomplishing one of my biggest goals, and over coming the obstacles thrown at me. Between switching colleges, picking up my entire life to move 5 hours away, and dealing with the death of my beloved grandparents, it has been more than a journey. I am a firm believer in “Everything happens for a reason” and “Going with the flow“, even as reluctant as I may be sometimes. I honestly believe that all of these things happened to me to test my patience, strength, and will power.
Second to being licensed, I have finally found my salon home! If you’re a stylist you know exactly what I’m talking about. If not, just imagine finding your perfect job. My perfect job would be: me, as a stylist, in a gorgeous salon, with friendly co-workers, and a positive atmosphere. That’s exactly what I got. Needless to say, my salon family is AMAZING.
Lastly, and most importantly, my mental health is at an all time peak. Over the last few years I have fought hard against depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. That’s some hardcore shit to post on the internet so that everyone can see it, but so many people deal with this and it’s really not as taboo as society makes it seem. Anyway, I’m happy to say that I feel like I’ve (mostly) overcome it. Everyone feels down and depressed every now and then so that’s why i say mostly.
If you’ve read this far I want to say thanks. I’m happy to be able to talk about how blessed I’ve been lately. I usually don’t get this personal on the internet but maybe it’s time for a change, everyone needs someone they can relate to.
